    Primal Snack Problem

    Got an interesting issue, I'm not able to eat enough calories to keep gaining weight. I probably need to eat another 500 kcals/day, I'm eating about as much eggs/chicken/bacon/milk/tuna as I can tolerate. So I need some portable, tasty, primal snacks!

    Criteria:
    Portable
    High Fat/High Protein-carbs are ok but I don't really need more than I'm getting.
    Tasty
    Cheaper the better, because I eat a lot.

    butter sticks!
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

    Homemade Larabars ----- !!
    “But a smell shivered him awake.It was a scent as old as the world. It was a hundred aromas of a thousand places. It was the tang of pine needles. It was the musk of sex. It was the muscular rot of mushrooms. It was the spice of oak. Meaty and redolent of soil and bark and herb. It was bats and husks and burrows and moss. It was solid and alive - so alive! And it was close"

    I haven't tried this myself, but I intend to. Spread guac/cream cheese/nut butter/spreadable cheese on a seaweed sheet, add sliced meat or smoked salmon, and roll it up like sushi.

    I happen to have all of those things handy. Will try that.

    I don't eat nut butters, but love lox and goat cheese rolled in seaweed/nori. First time I tried it I wondered why the heck I'd eaten that combo on a bagel all those years. The flavors are so much richer without bread.

    This tastes incredible and I often have it twice a day:

    take 60 grams of coconut cream (it's also called coconut butter, coconut puree, or manna?)
    small handful of walnuts (or any nut)
    2 squares of Lindt 90% cacao chocolate, broken into small pieces

    If you live in a colder climate and the coconut is too hard to stir, nuke it for 5-7 seconds. Mix all together and eat. AMAZING!!!!

    I do this now on my bulk and have it in the morning and sometimes again in the evening. Gives about 700 calories each serving?

    Also try using canned coconut milk/cream in some whey protein shakes. 1 can is something like 700 calories, so having that can with 2 scoops of whey and some water, will give you about 1000 calories.

    Those two things I listed above will give you 2400 calories alone.

    Not Primal, but Nutella will fatten you up quick with 100 calories/tbsp (11 grams of that in carbs) . Actually, that habit was hard for me to break when going Primal, but now I have little taste for the stuff.

    Seriously though, nuts are the answer. Get a big jar of mixed nuts (no peanuts) for $10-15 and start snacking. They are loaded with healthy fat and calories. Also very easily portable in baggies, don't require refrigeration, etc.

    I love nuts as a snack but due to the high fat content is it ok to eat more than a handful a day??
